      These were excellent. This will be the last fried dish I'll be making for a while, due to a 5 pound weight gain during the holidays. I doubled the jalepeno pepper for our own taste. We ate a few each and I froze the rest of them. I don't know how well they will freeze, but they should be okay, just until we lose the extra weight. I have about 3 pound left to go. Thanks Ellie May for a great recipe.
